    What started as an attempt by the regime of President Assad to disassemble an uprising has turned into a civil war that has divided the country into the largest battlefield of terrorism that we have seen thus far. The massive and rapid displacement of over 2 million Syrians over an 18-month period reflects failure of the Syrian regime to resolve internal conflicts and to respect the basic rights of its people; the failure of both sides of the conflict to respect international humanitarian law; and the failure of the international community to prevent the atrocities and widespread human rights violations which have forced a third of the country’s population to leave their homes. There is also a direct relationship between those displaced inside Syria and refugee movements into neighboring countries. Many of those turning up as refugees in Jordan and Lebanon report having been displaced multiple times within Syria before making it across a border.

More than half of Syria’s population is in desperate need of humanitarian assistance. Refugees can gain these basic necessities if Western countries provided them. According to an article run in the New York Times, “Of the 4.5 million people who have fled the Syria war, only 2,647 have been taken in by the United States.” One reason for the United States rejecting refugees is the fear of ISIS terrorists coming to the United States, posing as refugees.…

Since the start of the Syrian Civil War in 2011 millions of Syrians have become dislocated and impoverished, turning to Western powers for aid and shelter. Their requests, however, have been muted by recent acts of violence perpetrated by Muslim radicals, cries of bigotry from Western peoples, and reluctance from politicians who associate Syrians with terrorists and religious jihadists. Nevertheless, in 2015 President Obama promised that the United States would accept 10,000 Syrian refugees into the country, but since then his plan has become a target for criticism from the Republican party. Are they wrong for thinking…

Over 60,000 Native Americans were removed from their land in just one year with an additional 15,000 in the following ten years.
